What Do Wrinkles Come From?

Aging is a natural part of life. While you might be able to feel it in your joints, you can certainly see it in the hollows, lines, and wrinkles that appear on your skin. As we age, our skin cells lose certain elements that maintain elasticity and create fullness. It weakens the structure of your skin, causing it to become more fragile and inflexible. This process can also be sped up by premature aging caused by overexposure to sunlight and smoking. 

Once we lose these elements, namely collagen and elastin, we are unable to get them back. Eventually, wrinkles will appear around the muscles we use on our face the most: around your eyes, nose, and mouth, as well as your forehead.

What Are Wrinkle Relaxers?

These treatments enhance the natural beauty of the face, improving areas where wrinkles are present. Anti-wrinkle injections, also known as wrinkle relaxers, work to stop the formation of static wrinkles by temporarily blocking the nerve signals that control muscle movement. This decreased movement in the muscle reduces stress on the skin, giving you a refreshed and more youthful appearance. These treatments can begin working within three days, and you will see their full effects by day ten. We recommend a follow-up appointment at the two-week mark so we can ensure you have achieved your desired result or apply further injections as needed.

How Long Do Wrinkle Relaxers Last?

This type of anti-wrinkle treatment can last for different amounts of time depending on the person and their lifestyle. Most people will require a touch-up treatment every three months to maintain the desired result they prefer. At Cosmetique,  we only use injectables that are certified and known for their efficacy and longevity, ensuring our clients get the most out of each and every one of their treatments.

How Do I Know If I Should Use Injections To Remove Wrinkles?

We seek to enhance the natural beauty and features of our clients with all of our injectables for wrinkles. These kinds of treatments are typically a personal preference, and we have one-on-one consultations to discuss the desired result with you to determine whether your skin could be improved by wrinkle relaxers. 

These procedures come with minimal risks and the results are visible after two weeks that can last up to three months. Whether you are looking soften the look of wrinkles around the eyes, our skilled team of professionals will walk you through every step of the process. As with any facial beauty enhancement, it is important to take care of your skin afterwards.

FAQ: What Areas Can Be Treated With Wrinkle Relaxers?

When we raise our eyebrows, we get horizontal lines that can stretch across the length of the forehead. This is due to the ‘frontalis’ muscle. The severity depends on your age, gender and genetics.

 

Anti-wrinkle injections are very effective in reducing the intensity of the lines and in some cases, are enough to erase them. Regardless, our team of practitioners has helped thousands of patients achieve a more refreshed and younger look. We pride ourselves on delivering natural results rather than a ‘frozen’ look.

We all frown when we express ourselves. These frown lines are caused by the facial muscles (procerus and corrugator) that pull the skin inwards and downwards, causing the skin between the brows to frown.

 

Over time, repeated action of these muscles causes these ‘dynamic’ lines to become ‘static’ lines. Anti-wrinkle injections are very effective in combating dynamic lines, and in most cases, they delay or prevent the formation of static lines.

 

Like your fingerprint, everyone has a different pattern of frowning – from the horizontal (bunny) lines to the vertical lines. Our experienced team of practitioners has helped thousands of patients erase their frown lines to achieve a wrinkle-free look, and they are ready to help you too.

When facially expressing yourself, the skin around your eyes naturally crinkles, radiating from the outer corner of your eyes. Over time, these ‘dynamic’ lines can develop into deeper ‘static’ lines.

 

There are four types of crow’s feet: full fan, upper, central and lower. ‘Full fan’ crow’s feet are spread wide like fingers, while ‘upper’ crow’s feet tend to angle up towards the outer brow. ‘Central’ crow’s feet are the classic type we usually think of being visible from the corner of the eyes, while ‘lower’ crow’s feet spread down into the outer cheek.

Wrinkle relaxers can be used effectively for brow lifts. Eyebrows can be subtly elevated by injecting wrinkle relaxers into the muscle responsible for pulling down the eyebrow (corrugator muscles and lateral orbicularis occuli muscles). Relaxing this muscle allows the forehead muscles to elevate, which opens up the eyes and creates the effect of a ’brow lift’.

 

The wrinkle relaxers provide a more refreshed and ‘awake’ appearance. While not all candidates are suitable for the procedure, wrinkle relaxers are a much less invasive alternative that is worth pursuing before turning to surgical procedures.

Wrinkle relaxers can be used to relax the action of the depressor anguli oris (DAO) muscle that pulls down the corner of the mouth. When relaxed with anti-wrinkle injections, the sad curvature of the corner of the mouth becomes more horizontal, causing the patient to have a more naturally pleasant facial expression.

A lip flip is a cosmetic procedure where wrinkle relaxers are injected into the muscle immediately above the top lip. This relaxes the muscle, which causes the lip to flip up, giving the appearance of a fuller lip.

Wrinkle relaxers are a great way to relax lines and dimples in the chin caused by hyperactive muscles to result in a smoother, fuller chin area. This can also help acne scars that might be accentuated by the muscle action in the chin. Very low doses of wrinkle relaxers can be very effective, with the action lasting for about 3 months.

By injecting the masseter muscles of the jaw, wrinkle relaxers can treat bruxism and slim the face to enhance the appearance of the cheekbones.

 

The masseters are the muscles along the jaw that enable us to clench and grind our teeth. These muscles can increase in size as we age, adding bulkiness to the jaw and creating the appearance of a wider, squarer shaped face.

 

Injecting wrinkle relaxers into the masseter muscles causes the muscle to significantly reduce in size and slim the lower face, creating an aesthetically pleasing angle of the jaw and enhancing the cheekbones. There is minimal swelling and redness as a result of the injection.

Excessive and uncontrolled sweating (known as hyperhidrosis) can occur in various parts of the body including the face, hands, feet or underarms. Hyperhidrosis may be an inherited trait that stops the body from properly regulating its temperature. Until now, excessive sweating has been difficult to control. In clinical studies, 95% of patients with hyperhidrosis that was severe enough to interfere with their daily lives experienced the benefits of anti-sweating injections. After just one week, the sweating in these patients reduced by an average of 83%.

 

After the first treatment, the effects of anti-sweating injections last an average of eight months and up to a year and a half. For nearly 40% of patients, anti-sweating injections reduced sweating for more than one year.

 

These injections work the best for underarm sweating and can be very effective for reducing sweaty palms, soles and scalp.
